RETENTION SYSTEM sockets range in size from Ø48mm - Ø406mm to suit most post profiles and sizes. Each RS socket within the range provides not only for the post size but also the application requirements. For example signposts, solar-powered posts and other street furniture items without electrical cable requirements can be installed in RS sockets with standard bases to suit post height and site conditions. Alternatively for traffic-signal posts, street lights or signposts that require electrical cables a choice of ducting access options is available. These include 360° rotational duckfoot and tee bends for cables fed into the base of the post, pole-boxes and spur-bends that facilitate cables fed into side-apertures in the post and bridge-deck bases for shallow installation requirements. All RETENTION SYSTEM base options have industry standard foundation depths or customer specific depths and most RS sockets can be cut on site to match trench depth.

Our experienced personnel and distributors welcome the opportunity to discuss your post installation needs and present all options and solutions.
